Looks like this October i’ll be making my way east out to Winnipeg where I have the opportunity to present two sessions at the Software Developer and Evolution Conference. I’m very excited as not only will this be my second conference of the year that i’m presenting at, it’s also going to be my first time in Winnipeg. If you know of any fun family things to check out in Winnipeg please leave a comment!
My first session is about self organizing teams, participating on and leading. There’s a lot of things to think about when it comes to creating and fostering self organizing teams. I plan to talk about some of them from the perspective of a manager and leader, as well as a team member on the team. I’m also coming up with a good exercise that I hope will be fun and help illustrate my points.
The second session will be on iterative development. I did this session at the Prairie Developer Conference in Regina, and i’ve used the feedback I received from the attendees there to refine the presentation to hopefully be even better, and i’m also incorporating an exercise in to this one as well.
I’ll probably be making more posts on those two topics in the coming weeks, so check back for more.
If you won the lottery, the person is exactly what you were looking for, has all the right skills, fits in with the rest of the team, and is paid fairly according to their skills. Now go log in to your online banking app and check if you’re a millionaire……….No? I didn’t think so, because as it happens, most of us have never won the lottery
